How often do you breastfeed your 6 month old and how long do they feed for?
DS has 2 bottom teeth cut through and he is barely eating at all anymore not even solid food, out of a bottle or breast.
First time mum!

Sounds like your bub might have a bit of teething pain or is preparing for a growth spurt. I always found that my bubs ate minimal amounts before they went through a growth spurt the following week.
Is bub happy? Sleeping well? Wet nappies, etc? If so, I won't worry too much. Keep offering the breast and don't stress if he doesn't take it. Follow his lead and you can't go wrong. I wouldn't worry about the solids at all if he's not having any milk, food before one is just for fun, milk intake is his main source of nutrition at this age. Perhaps try letting him chew on a cold face washer before a feed if he is experiencing pain??
Good luck mumma, follow your baby's lead and try not to stress.

From what you said about his nappies, I'd probably take him to your gp for a check over (might have sore ears or throat) and have a chat with them about not having enough wet nappies.
Good luck, I hope it all settles soon.

Okay so we ended up getting med call doctor out who told us to go to the hospital, we had to wait 3 and a half hours for DS to pee!! In the end they just said cause he's eating less he's peeing less and at this age its normal for that! So he's a healthy happy baby
Thought I'd update you guys
